Albert Camus

"I have found no other justification for my life except this effort to create. For almost all the rest,I have failed. And if this doesn't justify me, my life won't deserve absolution."

"I do not desire anything other than what I have. My misfortune, and my punishment, is to be unable to enjoy what I have."

Whoever gives nothing has nothing. The greatest misfortune is not to be unloved, but not to love."

Halloween



Lawn Ornaments!

T.S. Elliot


naturally, i was reading some ts elliot with my coffee this morning, from "tradition and the individual talent",

poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. but, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.
